VOLUNTEER SCREENING POLICY

In November 2017 Baseball Québec adopted a “Volunteer Screening Policy” in order to assure the security of our players.

A copy of this policy can be obtained at the Baseball Quebec website.

On March 12, 2018, the Board of Directors of CBSL adopted a resolution supporting the Baseball Québec policy.

Consequently, all Coaches and co-coaches, all volunteers who could be in contact with minor players and all management people and employees of CBSL must submit to a background check.

For all question on this issue, please communicate with CBSL at info@baseballstlaurent.com.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME A COACH?

Take a step in an enriching direction: become a coach of your child's team! For those who would like to become a coach, the off-season offers the perfect opportunity to complete the online initiation program.

 

It's easy! Read the instructions and click on the links provided. The online program will take about 3 hours to complete and can be done in several sessions: the module will resume where you left off. Once the online course is completed, you can continue your training with classroom courses. For in-class courses available to coaches, visit the Baseball Canada PCNE website. For your information, courses will generally be held in March, April or May.

 

Once completed, you will have access to the Baseball Canada Online Library - a comprehensive resource to help you get started and a place to visit often while you coach your child's team. All coaching courses are refundable by CBSL.

CBSL will pay for all coaching courses up to a limit of one course per year per active coach. For the purposes of this resolution, the two introductory level courses (i.e., online and in-class) will be counted as one course.

 

Please note that in order to participate in tournaments or regional events, all A and B teams need a coach who has completed the online training and all A & B teams, other than Atom B, also need a coach who has completed the online and classroom training.

 

If you have any questions, you can contact the Director of Coaching.
